I apologize for not getting this posted yesterday — Southern Illinois got smacked with an ice freeze Wednesday night and I kept the boys home yesterday. (Jamie’s birthday was Wednesday and he got new light-up sneakers, so he was SO indignant that he had to stay home from school Thursday and not show them off! Needless to say, it was *quite* a day for us holed up in our house after that!)
But you don’t want to read about THAT — you want to know who the winner was of The Great Dinner Party Giveaway, don’t you??
Well, I am proud to announce…
…the WINNER of the beautiful 16-piece stoneware Pfaltzgraff Pistoulet dinnerware set…
…not to mention the BONUS Hostess Set including lidded sugar bowl, spouted creamer and adorable polka-dotted butter dish…
Donna has left so many supportive comments on the Spirit of Pistoulet and Pfaltzgraff Facebook pages since this contest began! I was so happy to read her name after the random drawing. I’m sure she’ll be celebrating the spirit of Jana’s wonderful books very soon! Meanwhile, here was a comment Donna wrote on Pfaltzgraff’s wall of why she’d love to win the dishes:
“I would like to to win the Pistoulet dishes by Pfaltzgraff because not only are they just beautiful, but I have no dishes since my divorce. I eat off of paper plates.”
Well, throw away those paper plates, Donna! Santa’s bringing you some fancy new ones! Merry Christmas, and congratulations from The Red Kitchen Project, The Spirit of Pistoulet, Pfaltzgraff, Lifetime Brands and TheGreatDinnerParty.com!
